Bidders on PSP assignments - please remember that there is a special ISMA-plus-Education benefit per DSSR 262.5  available to EFMs who are officially approved for an alternate foreign ISMA location.  See DSSR 262.5 below:

262.5 Education Allowance for Involuntary SMA Location
When SMA is granted for the Government's convenience (ISMA), and a foreign area is authorized as an official ISMA location, an employee can be authorized an education allowance within the applicable "school-at-post" education allowance rate for the officially authorized foreign ISMA location on behalf of a child authorized to reside at that ISMA location, unless the child has arrived at a selected educational institution under educational travel authority within the last 12 months (see 282). (Eff. 5/23/2010 TL:SR-734).
